    1. An unbelievably affordable set of sheet masks, each with different skin-friendly key ingredient (like aloe, charcoal, and cucumber) that has over 2,500 positive reviews. Sure, you could let your friend do one, but then you wouldn't get to try them all!


    Although each has different ingredients, they all contain collagen and vitamin E.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these face sheets. They're an incredible steal. You can't beat this price, and the pack will last you a long time. I love all of the sheets for different reasons. I love that it comes in a variety pack so you can revitalize your skin in different ways depending on which sheet you use. Normally, I'd wash off my face after a face mask, but with these sheets you should just simply dab off the excess. This way, your skin will soak up the collagen and whatever added vitamins/ingredients are in that particular sheet. They leave your skin looking radiant throughout the day." β€”LW

    2. LOL-worthy bandages featuring different insults from Shakespeare's works. You won't even be bummed about a paper cut when you get to put one of these babies sonnet.

She'd always be kind and give me one of these to bring a smile to my day, but I wouldn't blame you if you kept these gems for your personal use only.

In addition, the fact that you get two packs in the order means both of us get to have a set. I have a little bit of an office supply addiction, and I buy lots of sticky notes and page markers since they're my preferred way of taking notes and I hate folding over pages. Having little kitties look back at me makes studying just a little more fun." β€”Sarah

    Winky Lux


    I recently acquired this cruelty-free, gluten-free, and paraben-free set, and I'm in love. In particular, I'm obsessed with the bright purple shade. I'll probabably have to invest in a full tube of it soon, but these tiny pills actually last an impressively long time! I also find that the very small, round tip makes precise application a breeze. The deeply pigmented lipstick stays on well; I'm talking the kind of thing where you sometimes wake up the next morning and your lips are still tinted. This set was the perfect way for me to try out the brand's matte lipstick and discover how awesome it is. And yes, I will probably eventually end up sharing the colors that are less my style with friends, but they're all so cute I don't want to part with them!

    Get a set of five from Winky Lux for $16.
